Your own private entrance into your private bungalow detached from the house in our backyard. The bathroom is NOT attached but located in the main house about 10 steps from the bungalow. Adorable decor, bamboo floors, queen-sized bed comfortably accommodating two, TV, WiFi, mini-fridge, coffee maker, and more!!!

The space

We live on a quiet cul-de-sac in Costa Mesa only a 3 mile drive from the beach and a short walk to Back Bay. While our backyard lends itself to great entertaining, a giant jungle gym, a trampoline, a gazebo, room for our dog to roam, we decided to build a modern-looking studio tucked in the corner next to our avocado tree. Since we have extended family, who live all over, we really wanted them to have a place of their own to stay whenever they visit. Our kids, dogs, and neighborhood friends play in our backyard and pass through to the cul-de-sac behind us, while we enjoy hanging with friends and family on our large backyard patio!

Costa Mesa is centrally located half-way in between San Diego and Los Angeles in beautiful Orange County, just 5 minutes from John Wayne Airport. Within a 5 mile radius, the bungalow is located amongst some of the most highly rated shopping centers and restaurants in the world. With shopping, dining, or simply finding fun activities, the bungalow sits right at the crossroads. In addition, easy access to conventions in Anaheim to the beaches of Newport to shopping at South Coast Plaza, the bungalow is the right retreat. While the bungalow is a cozy 120 sq. feet, you have your own entrance creating a more private atmosphere. The bungalow is equipped with a brand new television, hooked up with wifi, fun décor, a mini refrigerator, and cute little patio. The bungalow, however, does not have an attached bathroom or shower so guests do need to walk outside to the main house to use the guest bathroom. We are a family of four living in our house with 3 bathrooms, so you may run into our kids but there is plenty of room to share. With all this room, we unfortunately can not accept pets!

Guest access

Guests will have access to the bungalow with their own private entrance. Guests can come in through the side gate without coming through the house, however, if I am home, guests can come through the house to the bungalow, making sure our dog doesn't escape the side gate. Guests will get there own key and back patio door will be unlocked for access to the bathroom.

Other things to note

It is very important when coming in through the side gate to MAKE SURE that the dog doesn't escape. Also, although we have a very friendly dog, we can't have another animal or pet on the premises, simply because we don't want to risk happening to your doc!

Our stay was very nice. The bungalow is perfect for a short stay. I loved the bed and all the little attention in the room ( coffee machine, fridge etc) and we also like the chromecast. Bullet is also a very nice dog who was very friendly with us. I recommend :)

Lysanne and her family were very sweet. I especially loved their friendly lab Bullet. The place was cozy and a close walk to many restaurants.

Thank you Lysanne and Rich! The bungalow was very cozy and perfectly suited my needs for this trip. Will recommend to any friends staying in OC in the future, and I look forward to coming back next time I'm in the area!

Really enjoyed this location. Our hosts were so kind and welcoming. Only downside is it was a HOT weekend...the room isn't very insulated. Yhere is an AC unit but you really dont benefit much unless sitting directly in front of it. But it's VERY cool air it blows out. Other than that, loved the house, loved the hosts, the pooch was sweet as well :) would definitely recommend it again.

Lysanne and her family are beyond wonderful and their little bungalow is perfect for having a place to call home while you explore the beaches of California.

Interaction with guests

If my family and friends are swirling around the house, guests can choose whether or not they would like to interact. We do have a large, black Labrador who is very friendly but barks when he first meets someone new. Although we can't risk having another dog here, we love meeting new people from different places as well as respecting your solitude!! We are so sorry that we can't accommodate your pet...we just don't want anything unexpected to happen.

About Lysanne

Local girl, who met her man on an outrigger team, fell in love, bought a house, had two super awesome kids complete with a big black labrador dog. My husband, daughter, and son are my priority, as I teach during the day and proud mom every other moment. Outdoor adventures, cultural experiences, teaching kids science seem to fill up my bucket. As a family, we enjoy camping, hiking, paddling, and going on road trips. While I strive to drink more green tea, eat grapefruit, blend kale and spinach with coconut water, and practice yoga on a regular basis, I would love to meet people from all over the world in the meantime!
